When you say "bad record", what's the exact error message you're seeing,
and for what operations?

So perhaps somewhere between r85420 and r85440, 'jserv_G4' was removed,
and later another file added at that same path (or the original file
restored)? Does that match with your records?

Yeah, I wouldn't expect loading B by itself to work -- it depends on too
much history created in A.

Do you get the same result if you try 0:85430 and 85431:90000? (Note
the "1" instead of "2" at the end of "85431" this time.)
